With an empty spot on the kitchen wall and a huge collection of dried hydrangeas hanging all over the place a hydrangea wreath seemed just the thing. It’s easy to do and adds a natural and homey touch to your wall…or wherever you decide to hang it!
Begin by gathering your supplies. I used a 14″ straw wreath (remove the plastic wrap), a glue gun and lots of glue sticks, at least 20 dried hydrangea blossoms, and a paper clip bent into a nice tidy hanger when looped through the nylon string that holds the straw wreath together in back of your design.
I always cover my work surface with a large piece of poly vinyl purchased at Beverly’s crafts…keeps your table top safe from the mess. (Beware, hot glue drips didn’t melt the vinyl but I couldn’t pop them off like I thought!)
As you work around the wreath, covering the top and sides you’ll need to gently hold the flowers in place while the glue sets. Once you have all the flowers on the wreath you can spray it with hair spray like some people do, or you can use a spray gloss finish which I find holds the flowers together a little better.
